I would like to get a new TRX, but it won't fit my budget!

 

Truck's looking good!

you cant just hand over 100 K for a 700+ HP truck ???  I was blown away  when they announced the first run was sold out !  

I had to walk out for a peek at my 2020s Bighorns lights, they would be  challenging, but you'll nail them !  somehow even w my poverty level truck I scored the awesome LED upgraded lights

Jeff, I would think about it more if the TRX would fit in my garage lol. 
 

Here’s my mock up of the front head lights with the grill and bumper.

Thanks Jeff the winch is part of the kit I just added the cable and red tag. 

I was not satisfied with the Molotow chrome so I BMF over it. I’m satisfied with it now.

I did a little more work on the tail lights and added the PE on the hood. Here’s the mock up of the bed.

Thanks Joe. 
I just happen to have a Scenes Unlimited Reese hitch in my parts box and decided to see if it would work on the RAM. It turned out to be one of the easiest ones that I’ve installed. It’s hard to see some of it in the pictures with everything being black.

Some more bench time tonight glued the bed together and finished rubbing out the clear coat. Set it up on blocks to see how the wheels look.

I’m getting even closer now to finish. I’ve got the interior in the cab now after several attempts it fits like a very tight glove. I’ve also been installing the front inside fender wells. Looking like I may be able to finish this one sometime tomorrow. Here’s what the test fitting looks like now. Thanks for everyone’s comments and support on my build here.

The RAM Power Wagon has been a very fun build for me and now it’s in under glass. Thanks for everyone’s support and help with the details that are on the 1:1.

Less than 2 months to build a detailed and tricky model like this is a big achievement Dan!  But speaking big and complex thing, you have already proved that you can deliver...  The RAM looks awesome and it was a good "how to" for everyone who bought this kit, thanks for my friend!!! ?

I’ve been watching this one along the way, I’ve got to admit that at first not having seen one of these in white, I wasn’t sure how I felt about the white, but this thing looks Awesome!!! You have really been knocking this one out too! Very detailed for sure!! I can’t wait to see this one finished.

This is really looking awesome. The finished product is amazing, I just looked at it over in the under glass section.

For anyone looking to build this kit, this thread will be excellent reference material and inspiration for years to come.

Thanks Francis the fun factor in building the RAM kept me busy with it with any of my free time I had. I’m glad that you liked my “ how to”

Thanks Brian with this still being a new truck I was able to use the RAM web site to build the truck and check out all the different color selections on it before I decided what color I was going to use.

Thanks Vincent I’m sure that A&N’s TRX that’s going to be coming will build up very similar to this one.
